About

What happens when you look death squarely in the face and how do you find the strength to crawl back towards life? 

Following its sold-out world premiere in Bristol and critically acclaimed West End run, Touching the Void returns for one week only for a global broadcast, live from Bristol Old Vic.

Be transported from the comfort of your living room to the freezing peaks of the Peruvian Andes, as Joe Simpson and Simon Yates’ perilous descent of Siula Grande becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival. Bringing the thrill of live theatre to your home, experience the death-defying heights and life-changing decisions from a more intimate angle than ever with our unique multi-camera set-up and an engrossing 3D soundscape.

Perched on an unstable snow-cliff and battered by freezing winds, Simon is desperate to rescue his injured climbing partner who hangs from a rope below him. Meanwhile, Joe teeters on the brink of death and despair in a crevasse from which he can’t possibly climb to safety.

Directed by Tony Award-winning Tom Morris (War Horse) and based on Joe Simpson’s bestselling memoir turned BAFTA-winning film, David Greig’s thrilling adaptation charts this astonishing feat of human endurance. Life-affirming and often darkly funny, Touching the Void takes the audience on an epic adventure that asks how far you’d be willing to go to survive.
